The Food Security Network NL and Oxfam Canada are teaming up again to host the 4th annual World Food Day Movie & Meal event that each year is a celebration of local food. This year's theme is Fisheries: the meal will feature locally caught seafood and we'll be showing the eye-opening documentary End of the Line, which looks at the effects of international overfishing. Speakers and resources will be at the event to help put the global fisheries into the NL context.
